Jake Paul has once again decided to resume his rather one-sided war of words with Conor McGregor on social media.
After failing to attract the Irishman’s attention by insulting his fiancée Dee Devlin, the YouTube sensation has tried a different approach.

Although ‘The Notorious’ is solely focused on his upcoming bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, Paul is doing all he can to secure a third professional boing bout.
Having knocked out fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib last year, the 23-year-old then also knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson, before beginning his campaign to get a fight with McGregor.
His latest video took place inside a ‘Raising Cane’s restaurant where he ordered a ‘Conor McGregor sandwich’ (chicken) before proposing another $50million fight offer to the 32-year-old.
Calling McGregor a ‘chicken’ will bring back memories of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s call outs to the Irishman way back in 2016.

Moments before he knocked out Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden, Khabib defeated Michal Johnson and told Joe Rogan he wanted to fight ‘with your chicken’.
When asked about the Paul brothers and other celebs entering the ring, McGregor told Bloomberg: “Am I into those competitions myself?
“You know it’s not the most high-level – if any level – at that stage.
“Obviously the [Mike] Tyson vs [Roy] Jones [Jr] fight was very high level and very interesting to see what they’re like in their older age. I thought they both fought amazingly.

“As they say, if it makes dollars, it makes sense. I know Dana [White] and the UFC are not really into it, but I’m not so against it.
“I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I’m certainly a viewer.”
